HERE’S HOW IT WORKS…

Call the Parent WarmLine  any time you want information.  You will be asked to provide your name, telephone number, and a brief description of your concern.

If a parenting specialist is not immediately available, one will return your call and discuss your concerns as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours, or 48 hours on weekends.

We’ll help by giving you specific information and practical advice about your concerns, and by identifying community resources available in your area.

“I didn’t expect my baby to be so fussy, so often.  Is this normal?  What can I do to comfort him?

Parenting can be as frustrating as it is fund, as challenging as it is rewarding.  It is normal for parents to need support and encouragement from someone who understands what it’s like to be apparent.  That’s why the Parenting Resource Center, Inc. has a parenting specialist available to talk to you.

Parent Warmline is a FREE consultation service for parents looking for support and practical information about the behavior and development of their children.  Just call the Parent WarmLine and a parenting specialist with ready access to child development and parenting information will return your call.
